WTB: Spotting Scope

I'm looking for a 'budget' used spotting scope,. I'm thinking something like one of the better Konus's or maybe Vortex, Bushnell, Burris, etc.

This isn't for serious work and a reticle is not required (but won't be rejected if it does have one.)

I'm headed to Yellowstone next week for the first time. I'm going to set up overlooking the valleys and glass for grizzlies and wolves. I already have a good pair of binos.

Or if you just want to tell me which spotter I should buy, I'm all ears.

Got into long range shooting just as a hobby which I rarely even practice (unfortunately), but I went with one of the best reviewed; fair priced spotting scope on Amazon, and I have nothing bad at all to say about it. Here's the link: http://www.amazon.com/CO11502-20-60x60-Waterproof-Straight-Spotting/dp/B003N7NQOY/ref=sr_1_16?s=sporting-goods&ie=UTF8&qid=1373009817&sr=1-16&keywords=spotting+scope --- Weather resistant, breaks down into a nice carrying case, clear line of sight from 20 to 60x. Good luck.
